Leeds Supported Housing Service – Mental Health

In this section

St Anne’s Mental Health Supported Housing Service, provides a wide range of housing across Leeds, from self contained flats to tenancies in a shared house

Service Description

The service is available for anyone with mental health problems who wishes to live independently but requires some tenancy related support. We are also able to work along side other agencies for those people who require more intensive support.

We enable people to manage their tenancies and develop skills and confidence, with a view to resettling to independent housing in the future.

Aims and Objectives of Service

The aim is to provide quality housing with tenancy related support to enable people to maintain living independently in the community.

We aim to provide support that is flexible to individuals, their objectives and changing needs. We help tenants with a whole range of housing related support required to successfully sustain a tenancy, as well as with access to community facilities, day care and specialist services provided by other agencies.

The service seeks to offer equal access and opportunity for all individuals and sectors of the community.

Coronavirus (Covid 19) Statement

Due to the exceptional circumstances due to the ongoing Coronavirus (also known as Covid 19) and the Government rules about self-isolating it is very important to reduce the risk of cross infection to all our Clients and staff teams. Our teams are working hard to support all our clients and are committed to keeping everyone as safe as possible.

This means that, in most circumstances, and in line with government information regarding self-isolation and staying at home there should be no visitors to any of our services.

We know, however, that this will be very distressing for some of our Clients.

Therefore, we are saying there must be no visitors to services unless there are exceptional circumstances and the visit is essential.

Before a visit can take place, this must be risk assessed by the manager considering government advice and the individual circumstances. Before setting off on any visit to your relative/friend please get in contact with St Anne’s staff to discuss your visit.

Our services are using all kinds of technology, including social media to make sure that the people we support can stay in touch with those important to them

St Anne’s has developed a visitors protocol to enable visits to begin again in North Yorkshire, East Yorkshire, Durham, Middlesbrough and Leeds care homes.

In line with Government & local Council Guidelines each Client may have one family member or other person who is close to them visit on a regular basis.

Decisions where visitors can go are being based on Individual Local Authority advice following Government guidelines.

This message will be updated regularly
